Brief Answer:
Pap smear would be helpful

Detailed Answer:
Hi and thanks for your query.

There can be many reasons. Mostly pain during menstruation is hormonal. A pap smear would be helpful to rule out conditions of the cervix like cervicitis, etc that can also cause pain. Consult your gynecologist to get this test done.

Please let me know if you have any other symptoms.
